31 August 18: Shelfieing to soothe

What’s on your mind today?

No, don’t tell me: it’s ‘When does term start and can I drop them off [four days] early?’ 😆 (Yeah, but you know you’ll miss them when they’re not around. This is one of the strange juxtapositions of parenting). I’ve really enjoyed the summer but like many parents (and single ones in particular – I feel your pain) I’m feeling a tidal wave of jobs, chores and unanswered emails rising up in front of me that can only be resolved when term starts. To calm my rising anxiety (which is threatening to suck me under today), I decided to do a blue shelfie and replace the tidal wave with soothing visions of a still, warm sea. Nothing complex or fancy: my head is doing a good job of ‘too busy’ to cope with a busy shelf as well. Wishing you a calm day, lovely people, whatever you’re up to.
